#2474 of 2515 2005 jeep grand cherokee problemms --?transmission
Sep 28, 2010 (4:11 pm)
I am the 2nd owner -- purchased in 2007 with 37,000 mile. Jeep now has 101.000 mile. Has always run perfectly, except that the transmission is leaking somewhere so I have always had to be careful to make sure the fluid level is right. Last week, the car started having problems shifting gears. It usually starts after driving for about 5-10 miles, the check engine light is on. I called jeep, and told them what it is doing, they said to take it in, it probably just needs a fluid change and a differential fluid change. They also said for $90/hr they will diagnose the problem. Anybody have any other suggestions or having the same problems.
#2476 of 2515 Which grade fuel should I use
May 01, 2011 (9:25 pm)
Just bought a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo V6 4x4. I've never owned a Jeep so I would appreciate everyone's help.
I've always used Premium gasoline 93-94 grade for all of my vehicles. I hear that Jeep recommends Regular 87 gas for its vehicles. I've been using premium gas since I purchased the vehicle. Please explain if this will damage my JGC, or why I should follow Jeep's recommendations, or if it's ok to countinue to use premium gas, etc. Thanks for all of your expert opinions!

You can't hurt your vehicle by using a higher grade than recommended... The only negative result is the wasted money..
A vehicle tuned to run on regular will see no benefit from premium..

i looked mine up and in excellent condition, a 93 jgc with the straight 6 and all options, is worth about half that. Offer him 3K, or tell him no deal. Tell him he can look it up himself. Jeeps are good if you know how to work on them. The only hard part is trouble shooting. I have kids as well and i understand where youre coming from. When i was driving mine, (93 jgc laredo 4.0), i was going about 60mph, and it started choking and sputtering. then it died. it sat for about 3 months. I put about $400 worth of parts into it, then my mechanic came back from out of town, only to find out (impossibly), the timing was off over 180 degrees. That was a simple fix. But i would say the 93 jgc with the straight 6 is a good car. I bought mine for $800, tag price, and out the door was $1100 and it had 175,000 miles on it. the condition it was in wasnt worth 1100, but i had 3 kids i needed the room for. after i put work into it, the condition its in now is worth about 2500, but to FINALLY answer your question, (im a chevy man myself) but yes, the 93 jgc is a great car, depending on the price, and if you have someone mechanically inclined look at it, is up to you. To give you an exact kbb price, it's only worth $3,730....

Kelley is asking price so that may be too high. And it's hard for me to consider any car that age to be in "excellent" or "outstanding" condition.
TMV for my zip code puts the value way under your number. Dealer retail (without options) is around $1,400 for one in "clean" condition. You can appraise it yourself at that link.
Of course, we're replying to a 9 year old post, so that number may have been spot on at the time. The OP may have gone through three Jeeps by now.
